Directors and heads of Playtrix at the anniversary


Playtrix Sports Bar and Grill, the country’s undisputed leader in viewing sports, recently celebrated its ninth anniversary at the Colombo City Centre Mall. 

The event to mark the anniversary consisted of a number of entertainment features performed by artists who regularly perform at Playtrix on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. Notable among the performances was a special combination of ‘Kani Trio’ (Mondays-Open Mic Hosts) and ‘Sam Day with Amani’ (Acoustic Wednesday). At 9 p.m., Playtrix was opened for the public, and the regular Friday night performance ‘Slipping Chairs’ was featured. Having been inaugurated at the Ceylonese Rugby and Football Club (CR&FC) in 2014, Playtrix secured a name for being the premier location for viewing sports. Throughout the past nine years, it has become the undisputed leader in its category, and has well attended entertainment lined up every day of the week. Located at the level one of the Colombo City Centre Mall, Playtrix Sports Bar and Grill is open 365 days a year, from 11 a.m. to 3:30 a.m. When there is a popular live sport to be displayed, Playtrix is open beyond 3:30 a.m.

“Playtrix is currently in possession of the largest permanent bar screen in Sri Lanka, measuring 18 feet. We have invested in the highest quality available laser projector for the viewing pleasure of audiences. For any popular sport like Formula One, bookings need to be made weeks in advance as the reservation slots quickly fill up,” said Playtrix Director Roshan Perera. A high-end bar in Colombo that allows guests to wear shorts and slippers, listen to live music or play games with friends is a something unique to Playtrix, as characterised by their social media hashtag #onlyatplaytrix. Moreover, the food and beverages offered by Playtrix have been consistently high quality, and evolved to meet guests’ needs. Burgers, pies, beer battered fish and chips, kids’ meals as well as local favourites such as Pepper Pork and Hot Butter Cuttlefish are among its most popular dishes.
